    A villain by any other name...

    In any case, this is the 4th custom I started, and at the rate I am going, the 1st I will complete.

    I had this idea, and was never sure if it had been done. So, I set aside my other projects to jump on it.

    I've added a ball joint for the neck, and would really have liked to *somehow* utilize the existing led in the head... but I think I am just asking way too much. A it is, it has more articulation that the previous head had.

    The sword is giving me problems, so I'm gonna have to re-think it.

    Something about this reminds me of the Botcon Clench... but then, Clench always reminded me of Nemesis Prime anyway.

    The head looks nice and EVIL... though the neck seems a bit too long, which makes the head seem comically out of place, like an ogre with a chicken head, if that makes any sense. :) 

    Shorter neck would probably make all the difference.

    The sword is not bad if it's supposed to be Nemesis Prime's machete or gutting knife (not a bad idea in of itself), but as a sword, I think you need something bigger and nastier. You could always scratchbuild... maybe cut a form out of an old bike reflector if you wanted a translucent effect.

    Swords from Lego Knights are not a bad size for a project like this... if you don't have Lego Knights kicking around, I will say that they come with an assortment of handy ratchet joints, so it might be worth grabbing one for future projects...

    Yeah, the head / neck are just sitting in the socket. Later, closer to completion, it will be more set in and affixed.

    The more I look at the sword, the more I dislike it and hate myself for destroying a good Grimlock Alt. sword. The more I think about it, the more I am inclined to fab a sword from scratch.

    If it's a 'Con, I think a good name would be...Um...Demolishor? Well, if you're gonna paint it, but if it doesn't have to be a 'Con...It looks as if it could be a huge, bulky Optimus! :cool:

    Probably a good idea, but on the bright side, this little bitty sword looks pretty pathetic in Alt Grimlock's hands too, so it's no big loss. :) 

    Since you've already attached the handle, maybe just give it to a smaller figure?

    I thought about adding a Prime head to this mold as well. Making him an updated Big Convoy. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

    Yeah when I put the Axe from the set in Onslaught's hand it just seemed to fit. So when I saw you where doing a Nemesis Prime out of the Onslaught mold I thought the Sword I used for my G2 Laser Optimus Prime custom Sword would be perfect!

    It just might be. I'm open to it.
